Mind/Body Healing Dr. Robert Weissfeld About NeurOntogenics

Conditioning

Every system in the body is subject to conditioning* - the establishment of learned habit patterns that can lock the system into altered function.

Conditioning affects mind and body, thoughts, emotions, muscles and organs.

All dysfunction in the body will necessarily have conditioning related to it either as the sole cause of the dysfunction, or as a secondary reaction to perception of stress, pain or tissue damage.

Conditioning triggers, exacerbates, or is the cause of  some or all symptoms of  a particular condition, though they are rarely attributed to conditioning.

Eliminate the conditioned habit pattern and the symptom, illness, or disease that is associated with it can immediately reduce, change in character or intensity or disappear.

Effective methods exist to discover and  immediately eliminate conditioned habit patterns.

*Classical conditioning (also Pavlovian conditioning or respondent conditioning) is a type of associative learning. The typical paradigm for classical conditioning involves repeatedly pairing an unconditioned stimulus with a neutral stimulus. An unconditioned stimulus is a stimulus that naturally evokes a certain response (called the unconditioned response). For instance, a light shone into a person's eyes makes them blink. In this example, the light is the unconditioned stimulus, and the blinking is the unconditioned response. A neutral stimulus, like sounding a bell, doesn't elicit this response. However, after repetitive pairings of the neutral stimulus with the unconditioned stimulus, the neutral stimulus comes to elicit the same response as the unconditioned stimulus. That is, if the bell is sounded every time a light is shone into a person's eyes, eventually they will blink when only the bell is sounded. Now the neutral stimulus (the bell) has become a conditioned stimulus. The response (blinking) to the conditioned stimulus is called a conditioned response.


Pavlov's experiment

The original and most famous example of classical conditioning involved the salivary conditi oning of Pavlov's dogs. During his research on the physiology of digestion in dogs, Pavlov noticed that, rather than simply salivating in the presence of food, the dogs began to salivate inthe presence of the lab technician who normally fed them. He predicted from this that if a particular stimulus in the dog’s surroundings was present when the dog was presented with food then this stimulus would become associated with food and cause salivation on its own. In his initial experiment, Pavlov used bells to call the dogs to their food; and after a few repetitions the dogs started to salivate in response to the bell. Thus, a neutral stimulus (bell) became a conditioned one from consistent pairing with the unconditioned stimulus (food). Pavlov referred to this learned relationship as a conditioned reflex.

Repetition Syndrome dogs us all...

NeurOntogenics® is the only therapeutic approach that purposefully and systematically addresses the interlocking effects  of neurobehavioral conditioning on all functions of the body - mental, emotional, muscular, endocrine and organ.

I think mom’s using the can opener again.

Dogs are great for studying conditioning. Once they are trained (conditioned), they will, without embarrassment, do the same thing over and over. Despite the fact that we (humans) have more ability to override our training or fight against it, we are every bit as subject to being trained as our dogs.

In fact, almost every thought, feeling, action and physiological process that the body engages in is largely composed of, and a function of, conditioned memory - training. Even when we are not outwardly acting it out, our internal state still reflects the learning from our past.

As long as those conditioned reactions exist they will repeat, dogging us over and over. When these repeating patterns detract from health and well-being, we call it  Repetition Syndrome. Repetition Syndrome hijacks the healthy function, turning it against us.   

Fortunately such conditioned memories can be erased when addressed properly.

When an interfering memory is erased, the underlying correct, healthy function is immediately restored.

Neurontogenesis is a shift towards the fundamental, foundational, pure and healthy function - a ‘restoration of factory settings’ engendered by erasing memory.
